I test my 15gal. oak barrels every two months and carboys every 3 - 4 months for free SO2. Need these for my Vinmetrica 100.

Works fine, very short shelf life
These are the reagents for the Vinmetrica SO2 tester. I like the unit itself and the accuracy seems to be good as well.

My major issue with this product is the advertised shelf life of 6 months. The manufacturer estimates the volume to be enough for around 50 tests. But that's a moot point unless one enjoys testing SO2 every weekend. For my purposes, I run about 10-15 tests before the shelf life expires.

The second issue is the high cost. Each bottle sells for north of $15 for 100 ml of solution that - I am guessing - is simple and cheap to produce in bulk. It's like printing with an inkjet - the real cost is in replenishing the inks, not in buying the printer.

For those reasons I can only give this 2 stars. A higher rating would require better pricing/shelf life from the manufacturer.
